Ba Pepile Mbututu

You cannot walk down the road here in Zambia without seeing almost every lady carrying a baby of varying age on her back.  They use a rectangular piece of material called a sitenge to strap their children on their back.  It almost always comes over the right shoulder and is tied in front.  Here is a picture of the kids as they played with friends today and another picture of Hadassah, playing with Levi.

I LOVE it! That looks like a really intricate knot. Is it? Thanks for sharing these pictures. You know I'm a BIG fan of baby wearing! The kids look great. We miss you @ FBC.

They are all so precious...I can't believe Hadassah can carry Levi like that!
